Skipping work for a concert is as good a reason as any, though unfortunately bosses rarely seem to see it that way. This led to two shrewd Taylor Swift fans taking extreme measures to avoid detection.

The Swifties had popped down to Cincinnati from Louisville to queue up at the merch truck ahead of this past weekend’s shows. The only problem was that they had called in sick from work in order to do so, and feared the camera crew showing up from WKRC-TV might out them and get them in trouble.

The solution? Draping themselves in blankets, which doubled as an appropriate homage to Swift’s “Anti-Hero” video.

The sunglasses-wearing Swiftie admitted she’d actually been to the concert in Nashville, but was in Cincinnati both to get merch and to attend the Saturday show with an 11-year-old who hadn’t seen Taylor live before.

“And we’re going to cross our fingers that work doesn’t find out,” the reporter said.

People online are already weighing in on how likely they think that is to happen—while acknowledging it was still totally worth it either way.

The merch line itself was intense, with a reported “thousands of Swifties” lining up as early as the night before for the 10am truck opening. It seems pretty safe to guess that the “Anti-Hero” ghosts weren’t the only ones playing hooky from work to snag a CD and a sweatshirt, and good for everyone who did!
